How do I work out what to do next, without disrespecting my marriage.

Out of nowhere it seems, I’m considering asking my wife for a divorce and I can’t figure out if its because I met someone else I feel I’d really like to get to know or because I’ve realized that we just aren’t meant to be. Or am I just being a douche for even considering throwing away what I’m confident almost anyone would agree is a marriage to a great woman? Sorry for the long story… My wife is a great person – of course – why would you marry someone you didn’t think this about? The list is huge – she’s smart, funny, empathetic, gets me, is very beautiful and will one day I know make a really wonderful mother. I know most would say all of this about their spouse, but even with rational eyes, the above is true. She has bad points too for sure, but no need to list those off as well. We’ve only been married about 18 months, but together for some time before this. [more inside]

How to get past four years of misguided limerance?

Around a month ago, I (female, straight, Asian, 21) broke off an engagement (with P, 32) because I had reason to believe a former tutor of mine (B, 26) was interested in me. I've since spoken with the latter and he ignored my emailed request to reconnect. What's more, I discovered that he (B, 26) is sleeping with a variety of 18-yo "sugar babies" on my college campus. (This explains why I see him often; he's not there to see me but to see attractive freshmen he pays for sex.) I feel betrayed because I really loved B and thought he was the perfect guy for me; I'm appalled that he's resorted to such a low that he targets freshmen girls. I wonder if he was only pretending to be interested in me when we met, since I was an 18-year old freshman then and am now older. I've been feeling blue about the entire situation and I'd appreciate any advice on navigating the post-limerance stage. [more inside]

Getting Over A Craptastic Relationship

So, I was together with someone for 16 months and things were 'okay' for most of that time. We moved in together and things rapidly unraveled as I came to some sharp realizations about the way things were going and asserted my needs--she immediately got squirrelly, the relationship ended soon after. I feel like a heartbroken idiot and don't know how to move beyond my pain. The entire saga is inside. [more inside]

I loved him, he loved me, but it was complicated and now he's dead.

I just ended a year-long relationship two months ago with the love of my life. He was a brilliant, creative, talented and generous man with Asperger's and a long, complicated history of severe mental illness. He was an Army vet and had lived an incredible life, full of adventures but also extreme trauma and heartbreak. He killed himself on Friday. How do I go on? [more inside]

Getting over someone who completely gave themsleves to you.

So there was a girl (as all of these things tend to start). She gave herself to me utterly in the BDSM and just plain loving sense, and meant it. We had a stormy but passionate relationship, and in retrospect I treated her badly during it. We'd broken up and weren't talking but I felt I'd left her alone to protect her from disappointment. We talked again, and we tried to go out...then she said she was no longer in love with me. I'm not an emotive person, and I guess I've never really felt heartbreak before (I'm late 20s). How do I get over this? [more inside]
